    Ok, seriously... anyone with the access cab (08 style) and has wet okole covers... HOW THE HELL DID YOU PUT THEM ON!?!?!?!? God I'm getting so pissed off right now trying to get them in, it's virtually impossible...

    Aight, sorry for the rant but damn I was getting pissed lol. I finally finished it... TBH it's such a pita I'm not sure it was worth it, but it does look pretty sweet in the end. As an added bonus, it's a little softer to sit back there now for that occasional 3rd/4th person I have. It's really hard to try and get it lined up perfectly and smooth edges, I gave up after awhile... but overall it turned out ok. After W.O. fixed the fronts, they fit a lot better now (they gave me '09 with slits for the side airbags to start with). Overall... once they settle I think I'll like them a lot more...

    Also, I know I put the headrests on backwards, I forgot about it before taking the pics I'll fix it later. Though the way the material was cut it really seems like that's how it was supposed to go on... oh well.

    Some install pics... overall it took me about 3hrs for the first one, once I finally kinda got a technique down it took me about 40min for the second....

    Excuse the messy living arrangements lol... living high class right now while out of state :D

    I still want to mess with the center cover to see if I can get it to work right, going to pull the whole top assembly off and toy with it. Also, I have the vinal back home in AZ to do the arm rests... so eventually that'll get done lol.

    It's been awhile but if I remember right you just pull off the child seat panels (upper and middle of panel), make sure the seat belts are poped off, pull up toward the engine and it should come out. Be careful though as it's all clips and just kinda work each one out. Though, it's been a long while so.... don't quote me on that. I don't remember any screws though.

    Sorry man but I'm really not gunna go back out and pull the panel off and risk breaking something again lol... I might have some old pics on my site give me a few min to check.

    Edit: Sorry don't have any pics of when it was out. I remember the top popped up pretty easily, near the bottom and center I felt like I was about to break it though... but it did come off without issue... at least in my case.

    There are two small panels made to attach kids car seats too....Take those out. Then gently tug on that whole back plastic piece until it comes out.

    There aren't any screws- Just little push in clips. So it'll take some time and patience and it'll come on out...

    I don't have my truck...and it's been a while since this thread was posted...so getting photos is probably going to be tough...
